The spread is used with cracker biscuits, dinner rolls and toast. It is made from yeast extract. It is made and marketed by Kraft Foods Inc. dark brown in texture vegemite is slightly bitter. It is not as yummy as New Zealand or British Marmite. The delicacy is now available in an exciting new gelato flavor. It is being manufactured by Gelatissimo an Italian company which is known for offering various flavors of gelato.
Dominic Lopresti the co owner of Gelatissimo said on introducing Vegemite gelato, “Vegemite is quintessentially Aussie and iconic of the great Australian way of life , we decided to put an Italian twist on great Aussie icon to celebrate the beautiful harmony between the Australian and Italian cultures.” However, the downside is that the special flavor of gelato with vegemite will be offered only for a week. The last week of this month is the time the vegemite lovers will be able to buy this delicacy. The ads are already out.
Unfortunately for the residents of USA, they are likely to miss this opportunity. As of now Gelatissimo chains only function in countries like Malaysia, Italy, Singapore and Indonesia. However, the company has said in its site that it is soon going to spread its operations in other countries. However, the long time admirers of vegemite are not sure how it is going to taste in gelato flavor. The foodies can give it a try nevertheless.
